The Winter's Tale, one of Shakespeare's lesser known plays, is a journey from jealousy and outrage to forgiveness and healing. In this lesser known masterpiece, suffering and tyranny give way to compassion and forgiveness.
This production features three outstanding female roles played by Grace Streib (Queen Hermione), Paulina (Adaora Okoli) and Perdita (Genna Sever). If King Leontes (who mistrusted his faithful Queen) had listened to the loyal women in his life then disaster would have been averted.
A play that begins as a tragedy ends with restoration and redemption. Don't miss this rarely produced gem.
Performances will be February 18, 24, and 25, 2023 at 7:30 pm and the 19th and 26th at 3:00 pm. Save the dates for this amazing production.
